General Report No. 85 of the Comptroller and Auditor General: Accountability and Governance on the National College of Art and Design
Mr. Seamus McCarthy:
For example, we are the external auditors for all the institutes of technology. It is somewhat different in the case of the universities because private sector auditors also have a role there. Where appropriate to do so we seek to rely on the work they do so that we can cut down on our own time input. Ultimately, we carry out a full audit of all of the third level educational institutions.
